Chromosome Analysis and FISH Mapping of Ribosomal DNA (rDNA), Telomeric (TTAGGG)n and (GATA)n Repeats in the Leech Haemopis Sanguisuga (L.) (Annelida: Hirudinea)


In the present paper the chromosome complement (n = 13; 2n = 26) of the common leech Haemopis sanguisuga (L.) (Annelida: Hirudinea: Hirudinidae) was analyzed using banding techniques and fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) with three repetitive DNA probes [ribosomal DNA (rDNA), (TTAGGG) n and (GATA) n ]. FISH with the rDNA probe consistently mapped… (More)
